Browsers plug-in for automatic privacy settings

The job is to develop a plug-in for Internet explorer, Firefox and Chrome that suggests and enforces privacy settings for Facebook users.

When the plug-in is executed it reads a predefined set of “Facebook required settings” stored on the user’s machine as part of the plug-in data. The plug-in waits during the browsing for a Facebook page and when such a page is navigated it checks if the user is logged in. If the user is logged in to Facebook the plug-in opens a hidden browser session, reads the relevant settings in user Facebook settings and compares to the “Facebook required settings”. If the settings have differences it opens a popup with the list of existing settings and the Facebook required settings so that the user will be able to compare and make changes in the required settings and to enable enforcement of the settings which differ. Once the settings are approved the plug-in opens hidden sessions and changes the user settings to the required settings. The popup includes also an option to change the settings automatically without asking the user in the future.

After the settings were checked the plug-in will wait for predetermined time until it checks the settings again.

More than one user may log in to Facebook on any browser but at any specific time only one user can be logged in to one browser

There are about 50 parameters in the settings, they are grouped to about 10 different sets and within a set the change of parameters is similar.

There are several default Facebook required settings. First time the application starts the user should choose the one that fits him best. He may change it to different default settings.

The developer should implement setting popup. This popup will be executed by the user. The results of the settings will be stored per Facebook user on the machine or for all users. If the settings were destroyed by the user default settings should be implemented automatically.

Example for a Facebook setting parameter and the change process is as follows:

Settings parameter: Friends can check me in to places

To get the setting the plug-in should open the page

If read is required return the value of the button in the popup. If change is required set it to “Enabled” or “Disabled”

Firefox plug-in is an XPI. Firefox 7 support is required
